Hello, all you lovely watchers! Those who have followed me for a long time already know that I like to draw mermaids and in May, I participated in my first MerMay art challenge. I created all of the illustrations in bright watercolors and sepia ink which is a different style from my usual digital painting style.
These watercolor paintings are a lot easier to create than the digital illustrations that take hours to complete. For me as an artist, I would like to create personal art more often and share them with you. If you haven't noticed lately, I've created a self-art challenge called MerMonday.
I combined the idea of MerMay and the hashtag MerMonday and created my little art challenge to keep me busy for the year. I've been pretty good on the task so far.
If you would like to participate in this art challenge or be inspired by any of the words on my list, you too can join in on the fun. I will post each word prompt at the end of each month on Deviant Art, Instagram and on my new website MerMonday.com
The website will have all of my MerMay 2018 and MerMonday illustrations. It is still relatively new and is a work in progress. I eventually want to create a section to highlight an artist who created a mermaid based on my list. Naturally, I would give the artist all the credit and an external link to his or her portfolio.
On that note here is the link to my new website.www.mermonday.com
Here is the new word prompt list for July.
Here are all my June illustrations
Let's draw some mermaids!
